Breaking: Court Delivers Decision on Buhari’s Disqualification

June 30, 2016, 6:11 am

Adeniyi Ademola, justice of the federal high court, delivered ruling on suit challenging the veracity of the academic credentials of the president on June 30, in Abuja. The justice held that by “section 50(2) of the federal high court civil procedure rules the matter is hereby struck out.” Earlier, ‎Justice Ademola had postponed the case indefinitely.

According to him, the case was being adjourned indefinitely following a notice of appeal filed by President Buhari. On June 15, Buhari had appealed against a previous ruling of the court discharging his preliminary objection to the suit filed by lawyer. The suit alleged that the incumbent president was not qualified to run for the position because he did not possess the minimum qualification to run for the office.
